My incredibly modest SS collection

Article about: If it was she'd be worth \\$10000+ and wouldn't be in my collection that's for sure!

    Very nice ring Glenn. I see SS runes scratched here.

    Yup, me too! The unanswerable question is whether they were period or post war added.

    I'd say, probably, post war. The wear to the right, just above, and to the left of the runes doesn't match the runes wear, IMO.

    The wear is consistent throughout the ring, except for the runes, which look a lot newer. Also, why wouldn't the runes that have been scratched on have the same discoloration of the other scratches which were due to wear, especially since its ground dug.

    It's somewhat more noticeable once the photo is enhanced.

    Regardless when the runes were put there, it is still a great ring, and one any collector would like in their collection, congratulations.

    I think I should include my Security Police (Sicherheitspolizei) erkennungsmarken in this thread pending the arrival of my latest SS combat disc from Russia in a week or two.

    Thanks Nick, it will come with it's dried out, rotten little leather pouch that it was found in which should look nifty in my display.
